    The only reason I was asking about connecting it to the inlet hose was...

    I have seen similar setups where people run FMICs and need an intake. My plan was to get the Apex-i short ram and attach it with a silicone coupler to the inlet hose, like some members here are running. My question is, would this work better or equal to the apexi filter setup? It would be cheaper but than again for about 50 dollars more I might as well get something that is proven.

    Just tossing it out there.

    I did this to my intake today. It seems to just be a noise maker. Looks pretty good though. Def. a cool diy mod...anyways thanks for the write-up!

    I did this before I even thought about EM and it worked great; never got a cell. But as soon as I went with the AP it threw that P300... Even after I got protuned, once in a blue moon it would throw the cell. I've since "upgraded" to the COBB SF intake and have had no CELs since. I think this option is better suited to people with no EM, UTEC, or people getting protuned in the near future. Glad it's *kind of* working out for people though...
